Maybe he’s just maturing/mellowing out? We’ve only had our cat for about a year (he E’s 6 months old when we adopted him) and he’s waaaay more affectionate now.

 

Baring any symptoms of illness, that would be my best guess.

When you introduce new environments (houses/apartments or other animals and people) its not uncommon for the behavior to change of an animal. I think your FI is probably right. He simply wants your attention.

Everytime our dog leaves the house for a period of time (IE my mom watches her for a month for some reason etc or I bring her with me to visit family) one of our cats (we have 2) behaves very differently.

My cat I have now used to be very skittish, couldn’t hold her, she wouldn’t come near us etc.   we put her sister down in December and since then…. She does not leave my side for a second…. She’s turned into the biggest suck ever.  

since she has a clean bill of health…. Maybe she just mellowed out, your cat could be mourning the loss of it’s friend.

@futuremrsk18:  Ahhh sorry my mistake. That really does explain it though. My mom had two Chow Chows for YEARS upon years. The one passed last year from heart attack and since then the othen one really seems to be doing better. She’s a better weight, she plays more eagerly with the other dogs in spite of her advanced age and she gets around more. Previously she was cranky, aggressive with the other dogs and really kept to herself. Strangely enough, he sister humped her too…weird heh?

Is it possible you’re pregnant? I’ve seen cats and dogs go APESHIT for pregnant women, it’s weird…
